STANFORD, Calif.- Stanford's Cardinal Council, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), will once again be sponsoring this year's "Big Drive" in conjunction with Big Game.
Traditionally this event has been a competitive canned food drive between the athletic departments of Stanford and California. However, this year all students and fans are invited to participate in this event during the week prior to Big Game, which is slated for Saturday, Nov. 21. Stanford will host Cal at 4:30 p.m., with the game being televised nationally by Versus.
The "Big Drive" will take place from Monday-Saturday, Nov. 16-21. Stanford student-athletes will be collecting canned food items at the men's basketball game against Oral Roberts on Nov. 18 and the women's basketball game against Pepperdine on Nov. 19. Items will also be collected in the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center, and on the day of the Big Game in the Fan Fest area, located on the outside of the stadium near the track.
All items will be donated to 2nd Harvest Food Bank.
The winner of the Big Drive will be announced during the Big Game.
